  semaphore
       
           The classic method for
          restricting access to shared resources (e.g. storage) in a
          multi-processing environment.  They were invented by
          Dijkstra and first used in T.H.E operating system.
       
          A semaphore is a protected variable (or abstract data
          type) which can only be accessed using the following
          operations:
       
          	P(s)
          	Semaphore s;
          	{
          	  while (s == 0) ;	/* wait until s>0 */
          	  s = s-1;
          	
       
          	V(s)
          	Semaphore s;
          	{
          	  s = s+1;
          	
       
          	Init(s, v)
          	Semaphore s;
          	Int v;
          	{
          	  s = v;
          	
       
          P and V stand for Dutch "Proberen", to test, and "Verhogen",
          to increment.  The value of a semaphore is the number of units
          of the resource which are free (if there is only one resource
          a "binary semaphore" with values 0 or 1 is used).  The P
          operation busy-waits (or maybe sleeps) until a resource is
          available whereupon it immediately claims one.  V is the
          inverse, it simply makes a resource available again after the
          process has finished using it.  Init is only used to
          initialise the semaphore before any requests are made.  The P
          and V operations must be indivisible, i.e. no other process
          can access the semaphore during the their execution.
       
          To avoid busy-waiting, a semaphore may have an associated
          queue of processes (usually a FIFO).  If a process does a
          P on a semaphore which is zero the process is added to the
          semaphore's queue.  When another process increments the
          semaphore by doing a V and there are tasks on the queue, one
          is taken off and resumed.
